The hat is terrible, the colors are too somber for a summer wedding, it looks like the blouse is unbuttoned so you can see her lace bra underneath (upper part 2 photo) and her hair is a mess as usual. Another total fail fashion wise imo.
I agree- it's too dark for a summer wedding. At first look I thought that she was attending a funeral....

Hate it. The colours really are too dark for a summer wedding and the (..) fascinator just adds to a big block of dark colours that leave me feeling nothing.

It's not my favorite. Mainly I don't like how the navy part goes all the way down. I am glad to hear the skirt part is different colors. When I saw photos from different angles in Tumblr, I was wondering if people were editing the pictures to make the dress look different. I like the hair (add me to wanting a direct answer on what makes it messy) and the hat.

I don't see why any color isn't appropriate for any season. Why should we let a time of the year make us prisoner to what colors we can wear? Sure, you don't want to wear a color that will upstage a bride at her wedding or is too showy or disrespectful at a funeral, but as far as seasons, I don't think that should have any bearing on what color you decide to wear. Obviously, if people want to follow that rule for themselves, that's fine. And I'm not a fan of the navy myself, but I wouldn't be in the winter, spring, or fall.

And what's wrong with the camisole? Isn't that meant for modesty?

I think I might have liked it better if the navy part stopped at the blouse part of the dress (I just really don't like that V part) Actually, seeing it again, I can see the part that dips down is green. I would prefer the color blocks to be uniform on all sides, if that makes sense.

Although this is not a look that I would add to my favourite list, I cannot see why there is an outcry about messy hair - it looks groomed and flowing to me. I don't particularly like the head wear or the darker colour, but she doesn't look terrible or inappropriately dressed. I do think people are prone to exaggeration and can't simply state it's a look they don't favour, explain why and leave it at that.

Not a fan of any part of it.. as its just too drab for a Wedding at the height of Summer..
There is nothing 'celebratory' about any of it.

A total miss for a wedding. You should never wear black in a wedding, (neither white of course), unless you are a extremely distanced guest sat at the end of the church and nobody will pay attention to you, the opposite of her case of course.
Black is for mourning and white is for the bride. You can wear all the existing colors of this world except these two.

How is her hair a mess? Because it moves when she turns her head?

I just don't get where messy, unkempt and disheveled come from. So, please - for once, as a nice change of pace - I am genuinely hoping to receive an actual answer to this. I am not looking for a whole back and forth that gets a Meghan thread locked - again.

And if she'd wear this dress with the pink, green, baby blue and navy colourblock to a funeral it'd be highly inappropriate...
Add me to the list who cannot explain what is wrong with Meghan's hair. I think it looks very nice.

And I agree, her dress-actually her entire outfit-would be inappropriate for a funeral. Navy is fine for a wedding, and she looks much better than the last wedding outfit.

That depends on your body type, I've been told if you are busty they don't fit well.

I would agree with you. It's the same situation with bralette.

I'm not a big fan of her outfit, but I see nothing wrong with it. It's a dress, noting inappropriate for a wedding or anything like that. But I'm totally not a fashion person, so I don't really trust my own judgement :)

The dress is nice but sloppy-looking, and too dark for a summer wedding. Yes, one can wear any color one wishes at any time of the year, but IMO a summer day wedding calls for something brighter &/or lighter. Love the shoes & clutch, not crazy about the hat, but her hair looks fine to me today. Much better than her normal messy bun which is awful. Her hair is done nicely, and I think would look better without a hat - they seem to be competing to me. The gold bracelet is pretty.

The Daily Mail saying she flashed her lacy bra! Good grief must have been a Man who wrote the article. I didn't bother to read it.
The Navy dress looks light weight and cool for a hot day.

But I agree with Payton the best thing here is that she looks genuinely happy. The Sparkle is there and not faked.
So happy birthday Meghan.

That is EXACTLY what I thought too. The dress itself is fine, but for a summer wedding?

Thank you for posting, I admit I've missed seeing her. She looks so happy and wonderful....wait am I in the fashion thread? Oh right, I adore her hair! and the hat. Most of the dress is impressive and unique, but I don't think the green and pink go with the black(blue) and white... On second thought it is just the green that seems misplaced.
